How faculty can move their local files to the new computer during their office PC upgrade using temporary network space

  1. Go to your H: drive: image
  2. Click on the icon: “TempMigrationStorage”: image
  3. Here is your temporary storage which you should move your files to from your old computer, so that you can move them later to your new computer:

    2. In this example, I copied my “downloads”folder from my local drive to my network  “TempMigrationStorage”. Even when my old computer gets removed, I will be able to access the network from the new computer and download the files from there to the new computer.
  4. Files on your H:  drive do not need to be moved that way. Settings on your old PC cannot be moved that way. Typical candidates for files that should be moved that way include large multimedia files that you could not store on your H: drive. For finding them on your local drive, I recommend examining your C: drive with the free WinDirStat.
